I came to this gallery on a Monday, when pretty much all of the other mueseums/ galleries were closed for the day in Zaragossa (as is the case in most of Spain). I was given free entry which I was not expecting.
The main draw of this gallery is collection of work from Goya, who was born in the city. The bulk of the collection is a series of sketches that he did. There is a whole room dedicated to this section, and they must amount to over 100. They were interesting to look at, but there are only so many pencil sketches you can take in in one go. It probably takes a couple of visits.
I much prefer the Goya paintings that were on another floor. He was revered as a master portrait painter and you can see why. Acompanying his paintings is a range of work from his contemporaries and more recent artists.
On another floor there is a good collection of 16th century art, and some modern art on other floors. It took me about 45 minutes to do the whole gallery, and I was impressed by the range of art I saw in that time.
Certainly a worthy stop on a trip to Zaragossa.
